It looks like MarketingSherpa (a great company that sells internet marketing case studies, etc) was just purchased by MEC Labs (MarketingExperiments.com). The MarketingSherpa story (like most successes) is pretty inspiring. Anne Holland talks about it an email just sent out to readers:
“Back in March 2000, when I founded MarketingSherpa from my second bedroom (yes, honestly), I dreamed it would grow to be the most tremendous source of practical research for the marketers of the world. Now we’re at 237,000 readers, three main offices and nearly 700 case studies. It’s been an incredibly satisfying and exhilarating ride!
“And now things will speed up even more. I’ll still be here (naturally.) Our team is just getting bigger — both at the MarketingSherpa brand and also with the ability to lean on the research and technical team at MEC Labs.
MarketingSherpa really does have great content, and it’s always free for a week or so after appearing online. If you like e-commerce, internet marketing, or SEO, you should definitely subscribe to their free “best of weekly” newsletter.
